|Hail to the Spirit of Liberty - Peerless Orchestra|
The Cylinder Archive [www.cylinder.de] release for January 2013: The Peerless Orchestra performs the well-known Sousa march on an Edison brown wax cylinder recorded in November 1900. John Philip Sousa had composed this march in the very same year, so this was a brand new issued song. The cylinder record itself is technically a pantographic copy, which was the usual way of record mass duplication before 1901/02.
